Most cabinet lines (even stock cabinets from big box stores) also come in a 12- or 15-inch depth usually used for upper cabinets. using slimmer lower cabinets for one area has its advantages. it opens a bit more floor space, which can make a big difference in a tight kitchen. it also reduces your storage slightly, but often the backs of deep cabinets are hard to reach anyway, so the shallower cabinets can be just right for everyday items.
